  4.    Research was done by Clayton Walter Stallings (C.W.) in Washington and Marion Counties, Kentucky, and surrounding counties. Wm. Stallings was very religious, as his will would indicate. He also had accumulated much property. His farm, as well as those of Walter Stallings and James Scanland, “Patsy” Scanland’s father, were of broad creek bottom land and adjoined the Cartwright Creek church lot, which was given by them. This church was Baptist and was organized in 1795. the whole site is now abandoned as well as the cemetery. The membership went into the Lebanon organization.  Any records depending on the poorly kept records of 150 years must contain some errors; but the information here given was derived from court records; such as, marriage certificates, deeds and wills, inscriptions on grave stones, and personal recollections and are substantially correct. The court records examined are Washington County records as all information from 1834, when Marion County became a county, was destroyed when the court house was burned during the Civil War.
